Here is what was done in 1997 in the words of Ray Bates, The British Clockmaker, Newfane Vermont:
"Extensive repairs to all pivots and bushing of bearing holes to compensate for severe wear. The escapement was in need of a great deal of work, it being nearly worn out and extremely abused by an amateur. The pallet faces were refaced and the escapement realigned.
"A new crutch was made and fitted and a new suspension spring and block. A replacement weight chain and lead counterweight were also supplied. The hands were derusted and reblued. New pins were fitted throughout.
" The striking mechanism was in very poor condition with its levers bent out of shape, parts misaligned and some missing. A new count wheel drop lever was made and fitted.
"The movement was cleaned, derusted and extensive corrosion removed, and completely overhauled, tested and adjusted."
